    People like to bash IE because its Microsoft and because it's slow and rarely updated.

    For home users chrome is a nice slick browser.

    In business use it's a liabilty.

    Chrome is constantly in beta form because changes are made so frequently. Ask it to work with any web based databases and it's a buggy nightmare.

    You have to lock it down to prevent it from updating. Ask it to work with any bespoke coded and it's a complete pig odf a browswer that is constantly crashing.

    In the enterprise,developers need a browser that is stable and whose code is accessible and not changing on a weekly basis. For that reason IE will always be king in the business world.

    Chrome doesn't work well (at all) with our SSL VPN.
